Rev. H. Beecher Hicks of Metropolitan Baptist Retiring

Metropolitan Baptist Church was begun by 10 freed slaves 150 years ago in 1864. Rev. Hicks has been pastor since 1977, and announced his retirement to the congregation on February 2nd. Rev. Hicks will remain involved in the transition process and will aid the church, but is retiring on account of a diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease. We are grateful to God for the service he has rendered to God's people and to the people of the DC area, and our prayers are with him and his family for his health.
